Im sure this may have been discussed before but its interesting to see the many theories that may have caused the ZA and what others think...

a combo of the above, i think its a biblical event like Herschel mentioned in the finale...maybe it was gods wrath started by an out of control man-made biological weapon maybe not , but it is a act of god and there will be a cure/end eventually

the best option is missing: I don't care

if I had to care, I would say it's like the idea of god, it's man made :)

I'd say it started as a weaponized bio-weapon, created by our government (or at least acquired and studied by our government). Perhaps they tried a control test of it somewhere, but then it mutated in ways beyond their expectation, or spread in more ways than they thought possible (air, water, etc.). And perhaps there was a supernatural force at work there, too. A bit like the super plague in The Stand -- starts as a military thing, but then the dukes of hell, so to speak, become involved, with Randall Flagg being the duke assigned to America and Canada. Maybe we'll learn, some day far in the future. I think it's best that we never learn it all, though, that big chunks of the story remain shrouded in mystery. Makes it more interesting. Thought, of course, I would like to know more!

I watch a lot of zombie product, but can't think of what the cause of a zombie epidemic might be. Virus works for 28 days later zombies, but not for long lasting zombies who can still function with most of their body missing. I can't find a potential cause in the list of causes that works for me, so I prefer to stick with not really knowing the cause.

I suppose if I had to choose, it would be aliens getting rid of mankind as a potential threat. But if they had the technology to create zombies, then wouldn't they have the technology to destroy humanity in some other way.

If it was a zombie comedy, then perhaps the cause could be that it's some unbelievably advanced but very twisted alien civilisation and the zombie apocalypse is some sort of reality TV show, where in each episode they destroy some aliens (e.g. us) with some absolutely weird apocalypse. For their viewing pleasure.

I think it comes from two parents - Night of the Living Dead and Stephen Kings' The Stand.

28 Days Later married zombies with man-made plague.
TWD pre-dates 28 Days Later so I don't know where the original idea of zombie plague came from.

I think at some stage they would have to bring in some reason to why it happened to add another dimension to the story and then later probably a hunt for a cure but that can go on for a long time

As much as I wanted to vote for Lori's cooking, I had to vote Pandemic. It seems unlikely its a weaponized virus. Why in the world would you want the enemy to regenerate?

DayWalker it could be a reaction to what they were trying to create but it went all wrong and went out of control.No wonder the army moved so fast to drop what seemed Napalm or something.And where is the US army ? Apart from most who could have turned still with the size of the US army some pockets of battalions and soldiers would still will be somewhere i guess

Maybe they were trying to create a vaccine or cure for something and it turned out wrong. Like they had good intentions in the beginning but screwed up the world in the end.

I think it is preservatives in our food supply coupled with the advent of genetically engineered food. Separately it is safe of course, the government says so but together it caused mutations of the common cold virus that no one could have forseen.

Either that or it is aliens. Patient aliens who don't want to waste the energy to do away with us by blasting us into oblivion.

Maybe they were working on a cure for Necrotizing fasciitis( flesh eating bug) or trying to manipulate it to use as biological weapon against the enemy but having immunity themselves but instead it mutated into something much worse and went airborne

Fluoride in the water supply. It dilutes our precious bodily fluids.

That fits in well with my next guess, Florence Henderson.

Genetically engineered crops or overuse of antibiotics in our food supply. Hey, that's how MRSA came about, the flesh eating bacteria..

When they were showing the walkers munching on cows I was thinking then is it a hint to BSE/CJD ( mad cow disease) which affects the brain..Remeber the disease spread when cattle were fed the remains of other cattle in the form of meat and bone feed which then spread to humans after they ate the same cattle
